A piPad. I would like to explore how cheaply one could make a piPad, a RaspberryPi-based touchscreen device. wlan essential.

I have no idea how cheap/doable this is, but I'd like to see it attempted.

more expensive and more clunky than a premade chinese one, but it might be fun as a project ^^

I'm doing something similar in this thread

It's about making an e-reader from an old laptop screen, but you could replace the laptop screen with a touch screen and be good to go.
Dear forum: Play nice ;-)

Yes, I think you have hit the nail on the head.
